A Case of Calcaneal Intraosseous Lipoma along with Haglund Deformity and Chronic Tendoachilles Tear Managed using Double Row Suture Anchor Repair Augmented with FHL Graft and Curettage of Lipoma with Filling the Cavity Using Hydroxyapatite Bone Substitute


Achilles' tendon is the largest tendon in the body, Tendon is an anatomical structure with inherent less blood supply and so more prone to injury and notorious healing outcomes. The management options for tendoachilles injury depend on the location of the tear, degree of retraction of the torn ends, and patient-related factors. Intraosseous lipoma is very rare benign tumor of bone accounting for 0.1% of all bone tumors. Most common site being proximal femur involvement of calcaneum is very rare presentation. Symptomatic patients with significant heel pain need operative intervention in the form of curettage alone or in combination with filling cavity with bone graft or bone graft substitutes. Many people use PMMA bone cement to fill the void.
